    I have the footswitch. It's pretty fast when switching channels. If you have it in preset mode there is just a slight delay but if you have it in switch mode it's instant.

    I was thinking of something more in line with this. Since you could pass the Volume and perhaps other settings might work with an expression pedal. Or one of the various bluetooth ones that have emerged with the recent popularity of software modeling.

    Something like this affordable Behringer one for $150

    How cool would it be for Marshall to take their Code series amps to renown guitarists worldwide and ask them to plug in and connect to the Gateway app and create their sound while posting this experience as a video on their site. I know...asking too much but it would have a ton of views. Kinda "What would Slash do if all he had was a guitar, a Code and a Gateway?"

    Yup, I'm using a G3X in front of mine and not really feeling it with the distortion. I find when using anything higher gain like the fuzz face or muff it gets over saturated and very muddy. I have found a bit of fun using the pedal to control input volume. Putting a booster in front of a clean has worked nicely for getting a bit more crunch.

    I'll try using a booster as you are doing to see how it works. Which pre-amp are you using on the code? as I said was trying to get the clean tone from it and basically just using the G3X as a stomp box. For power amp I find myself using the classic 100W or the vintage 30W most of the time and cabinet usually any of the 2 1x12...

    Any of the cleans with enough volume can really be brought up to a crunch. The one i've been using the most is the american clean pre-amp.

    I own a JCM800 4210 combo from 84' and a CODE 25.
    The 4210 has a G12M-70 speaker and is a dual channel JCM800 2205 with spring reverb basically.

    I made 2 patches for the code - one for each channel - using a splitter and having them both side by side.
    I though i share them with you.
    Turn the master to a healthy volume...
    If any of you has such an amp maybe share your thoughts

    This is gold Jalex. Thank you! I owned a JCM2000 DSL 50 at one time and made an "80's Rock" preset based on what I remember. It's my favorite preset although I wish I could have done an A/B test like you did but the Code wasn't out until after I sold it for financial reasons.

    Any suggestions on Neal Schon/Journey rhythm sounds?

    Try using it in Google Sheets. It's free.

    Thanks, Jeremy. I guess it will work in google ...

    I personally had excel, have done for years and it creates PDF's which is a much faster way to view, I just thought it might help others.

    I'm still wading through the settings to check if they are all correct. Its very time consuming ;-)

    I'm up to 79 I think so not much further to go, there are 4 errors since the last set i'll finish the checking before I deliver the relevant errors/changes.

    I agree. Check out the video. If you switch between different amps and preamps and cabinets, it takes a moment to load new settings. But if you have Plexi and Classic Marshall 100, and then switch between FX with the same amp and preamp there doesn't seem to be a delay.

    Not sure if this will help anybody out, but I took the factory presets list and added 3 columns to the front of it. One for clean, one for crunch and one for OD. I then indicated which preset category each fell into. I did this because I wanted to be able to quickly go to a specific "type" of preset and compare tones. Now I can easily scan for "crunch" presets to compare. Hope it helps others.

    I assume you've found this already, but just in case...

    Nice one Wayne, I like that idea and the explanations table at the top I like that too, I'm sure @mazzefr will notice this and put a link at the front to this.

    I'm still wading through Andy's original list (I got sidetracked by wifey and a paint brush), there are some discrepancies detailed earlier in this thread though did you pick them up in your list?. I'm sure everyone is aware that patches 71/72 marked "X" are not factory settings.

    Nice ideas though, thanks.

    I'll try and pick up the proofing again soon...

    Some days ago I could put the Marshall AS100D and the code 50 side to side. I know one is a acoustic amp and one for electric but I tried to get the code 50 sound similar to the as100d but without good result. The As100D sounded much more warmer than the code no matter which setup I tried. So does anyone have a good setup/patch for sounding the code really warm?

    What kind of pick are you using. That can make a huge difference to the sound of your guitar. More than changing pickups.

    I mostly use JazzIII's. The standard red one is kind of middle of the road general purpose. A Jazz III made from Ultex (the semi opaque yellowish ones) produce a warmer sound taking away some of the highs they can sound pretty smooth. The prime tone Jazz III's are quite bright and punchy with a lot of detail but can sound a bit brittle. Tortex sounds in between the standard red and the Ultex.

    It might be worth getting some pick variety packs like the Dunlop ones to see what kinds of tone variations you can get with your particular guitar and pickups.

    Thx for the answer. But when i tried both amps i used the same pick, so the sound produced from the guitar was the same. But if there is no other way to sound the code warmer (e.g. like the as100d) i will try using another pick.
